We are a two studio facility. "The Music Room" is our pride and joy, built in 1977 as a world-class, state-of-the-art control room and studio. It is available for large multitrack sessions with a spacious performance area, a variety of live & dead areas, and an isolation room.
"The Doghouse" is our second 24-track room for overdubs, MIDI music production, and CD Mastering.
The Doghouse is also good for smaller musical projects, voice-overs and spoken word, or pre-production.
While we use Digital Performer as our main recording platform, we can also deal with ProTools, Logic and can arrange conversion of projects from one format to any other.
We founded Group Effort on one basic principle: With today's technology, you can make a great sounding recording, and it doesn't have to cost a fortune if you know what you're doing. We never intended to be one of the mega-buck studios you see in the magazines, only to sound like one!
The only reason we are in the recording business in the first place is because there couldn't be a cooler career than making great recordings with great musicians. Through a concious effort to embrace only the most cost-effective, breakthrough technologies, we have been able to achieve our goals and thrive in the process, becoming one of the busiest studios in the Cincinnati area.
Today Group Effort Sound Studios offers an extremely wide range of audio services and formats to accommodate a wide variety of needs. Click to see our extensive equipment list.
Even though this is an equipment intensive business, we never lose sight of the fact that it's people that make the difference here. When you book a session at Group Effort, you never have to worry about getting saddled with a 2nd-rate engineer who only knows how to work half of the gear or just doesn't care. Our staff is experienced and knowledgeable both musically and technically, ready to offer a timely suggestion, or just stay out of the way and keep things running smoothly. We have wide range of personal musical interests, both in listening and performing, so we are able to approach any musical genre with confidence and creativity.
